the color of money . . .

Well, I guess that depends on where you live;
our legal tender is, for the most part, green.
So, for the newest color challenge at Gingersnap
--Color of Money--and this month's
general "At the Mall" theme, this just seemed
so right:

I like my money right where I can see it--

hanging in my closet!

This tiny dress is atc size (2 1/2 inches by 3 1/2 inches),
and made from green collage sheets from Altered Pages. My
personal challenge to myself this time was to use only paper,
and so I was all proud of myself for not cracking into the
ribbon or bling, but then I realized I'd used ink! Way to
mess up my own challenge, right? Had to laugh at that one!

I'd love for you to leave a comment, and promise to stop
by and visit everyone when the daughter and I return from
our voyages--we should be packing today, and NOT blog
visiting, and I'll be away from the computer until the
5th of July.

"See" you then!

OK, I'm going backwards and catching up. I love this dress and so what if you used ink, it will be our little secret. lol
